I don't think there is a lens made that is razor sharp wide open at the edges?

Question; how often will you shoot wide open, and does anything outside the center matter?

That is funny that you should say that. Shooting with the subject in the corners is one of the things I try to do to spice up the monotony when doing street photography. I have also tried to do similar things with architecture, such as framing a particular feature is a corner and filling the rest of the frame with relevant, but not the focal point in an image.

Usually, you can get away with soft corners in portraiture and no one would be the wiser, so I completely understand your position.

I so very love my beautiful wife. Shot with the GH4 and the beginning of the end of my m43 journey.

my point, Lux, was about SHARPNESS mattering in the corners, esp. w/ shallow DoF. I should have been more explicit (-;

Oh okay, I gotcha now!!!
